Naturist FAQ

Here are our answers to a few of the million and one questions would be naturists have about the naturist lifestyle.

1. What should I take on a visit to a naturist club or venue?
A towel to sit on and/or for swimming. You may want a smaller towel too if using a sauna. If it is a day visit - any food and drink you require.
Sun protection cream or lotion, if you are going to be outdoors, remember even on an overcast day the suns rays can burn.

2. Can I take my camera?
Best to leave that in your car until you know the venue's rules regarding photography.

3. Will people look at me because I don’t have the body beautiful?

Who has??? A naturist is accepted for who you are not what you look like.

4. Do I have to strip off and be nude all the time?

Well, you are visiting a naturist club where the norm will be to be nude. Most clubs won’t expect you to strip as soon as you walk through the gate though.
If the weather is cold you cover up and if it rains there is normally a club house where most retreat to.
If you are lucky enough to have brilliant wall to wall sunshine and the sun starts to feel too hot, cover up.
Remember some holiday eating places require clothing to be worn indoors. If dining al fresco and naked, remember to always have something to sit on.

5. Erm, that time of the month?

It is accepted that the ladies, at times, like to wear bikini bottoms. This gives away the fact that her body is behaving in a normal, healthy way. No problem!
But remember most clubs have a No Clothing rule for the pool.

6. What if I get an erection?

Providing you sun bathe responsibly and use any necessary protection, the relaxing environment away from the daily rat race can only be of benefit and many clubs have sporting activities you can join in with, just don’t overdo the sporty bit.
Remember, some sporting activities can be more exhausting in the hot sun, so know your limits.

Ask. When you arrive you can ask the person greeting you who should you speak to if you have any questions
but usually club members have no problem in helping newcomers enjoy the day at their club.

Well, they will only find out if you tell them. Club membership lists should be confidential. Ask if you think there is the possibility of disclosure of information.
